LINK Hospital Improvement Event 2012 Report

Since 2010, Tameside LINk has invited people to tell us about their experiences as patients at Tameside Hospital. In this time we have gathered the views and experiences of over 400 people.
This event was organised to inform people what the hospital has done about the LINk’s eight key recommendations and what effect that has had, and to let people tell the LINk about recent hospital experiences if they or a relative used the hospital since May 2011.

LINk 'Enter & View' Hospital Report August - 2011

In December 2010 and January 2011 the LINk exercised its right to ‘Enter & View’ services at the hospital. This was to find out whether our recommendations were being implemented and to make an assessment of how well we felt the hospital was performing.
Tameside Hospital welcomed and fully co-operated with the LINk.
A further set of Enter and View visits was undertaken in August 2011. This is a report of those visits.

LINk Tameside Hospital Improvement Report 2010

In October 2009, the Dr Foster organisation published a report entitled "How Safe is Your Hospital?" In January 2010 the LINk supported Tameside's Personal and Health Services Scrutiny Panel at their Local Health Accountability Conference.
It was clear to the LINk that many members of the public had stories to tell about the care they (or a friend/relative) had received at the hospital.
The LINk met with managers at the hospital and at NHS Tameside and Glossop to discuss our ideas for a public event aimed at letting people tell their stories and talk about their ideas. A"Hospital Improvement Event" was arranged for 12 May 2010.
The LINk hosted this event as an independent network and representatives of NHS organisations did not attend. The main reason for this was to enable free and frank discussions to take place without emotions becoming too highly charged.
This is the report about what people said at the event.
